Description
1983-84 OPC Pelle Lindbergh Philadelphia Flyers Autographed Card Rookie - Deceased Very Rare
Lot #407
The Philadelphia Flyers selected Lindbergh in the 2nd round of the 1979 NHL Entry Draft. Pelle made his NHL debut with the Flyers during the 1981-82 season after dominating the AHL’s awards ceremony the year prior. This ill-fated netminder played merely 3 full and 2 partial seasons in the NHL where he left no doubt about his vast talent. Lindbergh was a 2-time NHL All Star. He was voted 1st Team All-Rookie in 1982-83 and was a 1st Team NHL All Star in 1984-85. Pelle captured the Vezina Trophy as the NHL’s top goalie in 1984-85, his final complete NHL season.



Merely one month and just 8 games into the 1985-86 season, Lindbergh died in a fatal car crash in New Jersey as his Porsche struck a wall at high speed. Sadly, Pelle was just 26 years of age. The card is in beautiful condition.
